Tsikata’s wife has also come out to deny receiving any mone but insisted the GNPC owes her after working as the Head of Public Affairs before she exited the company in 2001.
Another former GNPC CEO Nana Boakye Asafu-Adjaye and a former Field Evaluation and Development Manager, Mr. Benjamin Dagadu who is currently a deputy minister are two others who were also paid y the GNPC after their “invaluable” contributions.
The payments have been branded “illegal” and “criminal” by Adansi Asokwa MP Kobina Tahir Hammond who was deputy Energy Minister under the Kufuor administration.
